Bacteriophage therapy has unlimited uses and is effective in eradicating bacterial disease and infection in three key areas.

Food Safety

In food safety, our phages help prevent disease and the spread of disease, without introducing antibiotics into the food chain or the environment.

Animal Health

Cytophage is developing bacteriophages that will reduce and ultimately replace the use of antibiotics for illness prevention and growth enhancement in livestock, starting with poultry.

Human Health

In human health, phages can address a full range of bacterial illnesses and conditions, from treating acne and eczema, alleviating internal bacterial infections such as pneumonia, preventing wound infections and battling outbreaks such as cholera or diphtheria.
